José Maurício Nunes Garcia: a civilized mulatto in the first Brazilian Republic

Keywords: José Maurício Nunes Garcia, Alberto Nepomuceno, Festive Mass or of Santa Cecília, Musical Belle Époque, Brazilian Music History


The find of the autograph manuscript of Alberto Nepomuceno's transcription of the Festive Mass, by José
Maurício Nunes Garcia, brought to light information previously unknown. Since such score was not at Alberto
Nepomuceno's General Catalog (Corrêa, 1985, 1996), this identification promoted the return to the investigation of the meaning of José Maurício Nunes Garcia in the establishment of a musical identity by the First Brazilian Republic. This is the aim of this paper.
